Monastero Barolo Bricco Luciani 2009
Very open, fragrant, appealing wine with a powerful, yet well-balanced bouquet. It has a pervasive nose showing hints of roses, raspberries and underbrush, slight vanilla and liquorice overtones.
Garnet red colour.
On the palate it is full-bodied, with tannins that are very dense and biting, yet never aggressive, showing the wine's considerable breadth and consistency.
It reaches its peak however after several years in the bottle, where its complex tasting qualities are further enhanced.
Recommended with hard, mature cheeses, and with braised and roast meats and game.
